Its a little dark for me. The windows are fine but I would have let the windows get a little brighter in order to bring out more detail on the interior. My eyes go right to the windows and thats about it.

Yeah, I'm looking at the ceiling. Can't tell for sure but might have lost details there because of exposure setting.




Instead of shooting head on try shooting from the end of the room so the windows are at an angle to the cam.
Remember up can shoot the cam from any height that makes it work including the ceiling.

Try bracing the cam on anything handy, walls, door frames, beams etc. Lose the tripod; it speeds setup and gives you more shooting flexibility. Gorilla shooting works well at shutter speeds 1/30 or so and up with practice.
Bump up the ISO; 200-400 is worth the faster shutter speed.

Try different metering weighing modes and go full manual to set up exposure.

Cropping; I like that image more with only the center window and foreground showing.

The exposure looks good to me especially if shot RAW. Playing with it post processing should bring it up nicely.
Play with the contrast curve if haven't already, it's fast and easy.

Make sure the monitor and throughput are setup and calibrated correctly and the light levels in the editing area are low enough.
What we are seeing may not be what you are seeing; that fault could be on either end.

Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

More of a composition critique: I like how the windows really draw your eye to the top half of the shot where the windows are pretty uniform and straight. Then my eye wanders down to the bottom half of the image where things become less organized which is a nice contrast.

Since others already commented on the exposure and brightness, the only other thing I notice is that the angled braces in front of the right window kind of through the image out of balance a bit. I think if you framed your shot a little closer it might help to balance the scene more.

I really like the leading lines on the ceiling though. They help to break the image into three different parts, which really makes it nice to look at.
